In addition, it covers the age range from 18 to 34 years old; meaning therefore that the vaccine is working correctly in safeguarding the older and more fragile part of the population.
Currently, more than 5,000 people are seriously ill in hospitals with Covid; and more than a fifth of those admitted are young people. Patients aged 18-34 made up more than 20% of those admitted to hospital last month.
NHS chief executive Amanda Pritchard said:
Almost nine in 10 adults have had their first Covid-19 vaccination and more than 32 million have now had both jabs. There is no doubt that the NHS vaccination programme is having a major impact, keeping around 52,000 people out of hospital and saving an estimated 60,000 lives.
This situation urges people to do not delay their jab and book their vaccine as soon as possible if they haven’t done it yet.
The COVID-19 vaccine helps us keep enjoying the things we love. It’s the best way to protect yourself, friends and family from the virus.
